A while back Thomas aka Twistermc, whipped up a handy tool for creating RSS subscription buttons to place on blogs. This makes it easy for the reader to subscribe to the blog using their favorite RSS reader or aggregator. (See the buttons down the left side of this blog) This particular tool has been very popular and is the source for many, many links to Online Marketing Blog and to the blog marketing tools page over at TopRank.
I was checking out some of these links and noticed that some pretty interesting referrers. There are quite a few prominent SEOs using the RSS Button tools. I think that’s pretty cool actually.
Thomas will be implementing an upgrade to the tool in the near future that allows you to display subscription options as a drop down rather than displaying all the buttons. This is good news for some blogs as it will make more space for ads or other features like tag clouds, blog roll links, categories and archives.
If you can’t wait, then visit the RSS Feed Button tool page now and create your own subscription buttons with RSS feed embedded automatically. It takes just a few seconds and is very easy to apply to your blog.
